  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large cinnamon sticks
  • 4 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped


  • Pour sugar into the bottom of a saucepan and turn the heat to medium. Add in the cinnamon sticks. Use a rubber spatula to stir the sugar constantly until it melts and turns a nice caramel color, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Remove the cinnamon sticks and discard. Pour in 1/2 cup of the whole milk. The caramel will seize a little bit, but continue stirring. Slowly pour in the milk, stirring constantly. As the milk heats up over medium heat, the caramel will begin to dissolve.
  • Once the caramel has dissolved and the milk has heated up, stir in the bittersweet chocolate until melted.
  • Pour the liquid into a blender. Be sure it is vented out the top so that pressure does not build up and blend for 60 seconds until smooth. Serve hot.
